Arthur‘s costume may look fairly standard — we’ve certainly seen him in his fighting armor before — but Spicer promises we will see subtle changes in his style this year. “When he is in his private chamber with Gwen, he might be much more casually dressed — just a linen shirt and trousers,” she says. “All other times he is King – chain mailed and armored up and ready for anything at any moment!” Spicer says that the armor worn by Bradley James and the fellow knights is made of lightweight material, but she does confess, “The chain mail is very heavy.” Fortunately, “The actors are very good about wearing it … most of the time.”
